Using the Tactics of Tyrants in the Name of Love

One thing that bothers me is when people use bullying, intimidation, name calling and other methods to silence their opponents in the name of a noble cause.   Either they don't realize or don't care that they are using the same tactics as tyrants and hate groups. They don't see how hypocritical and counterproductive it…

Treating the Symptoms Instead of the Disease

One thing that we have to be careful of, whether when dealing with a physical illness or a social problem, is the tendency to treat the symptoms without treating the disease.

Whether it's the hateful ones who discriminate against people based on the color of their skin, their culture, national origin, religion or sexual identity,…

The Missing Voices of Love & Reason

In the aftermath of this election, which I think was exhausting and draining on all of us, I've been doing some thinking. There are a ton of voices that divide us and promote their own interests and agendas above all others, but where are the voices promoting peace, love and respect? We have a lot…
The Players in the Racism Game 2

The Players in the Racism Game

To better understand the problem of racism, we need to understand the groups involved in the struggle and what motivates or triggers them. Some of these groups are intentionally causing problems, while others have good intentions but actually are contributing to the perpetuation of the problem. You will take some heat for being a true non-racist,…
